Glasses around the neck
Frels® reimagined the eyewear holders and offers them catchy universal temple extenders which allow glasses to be stored around the neck and have them always at hand. High performance and quality sustained by extensive research in flexibility, heat resistance, oil resistance, grip, sensorial property, and safety. The choice of materials ensures safe skin contact and comfort at all times, without compromising any function of the glasses.
Ever since Frel Solutions’ founder Francesca Melera started wearing reading glasses, she wanted to find a solution to the annoying problem of continually having to take them off and put them on again. Like many people, she used them for near task. Yet finding her glasses was irritating because they were rarely at hand. Francesca came up with the Frels®idea and discussed it with her friend Elena Delli-Compagni, Project Manager specialized in IP/Patents. They then prepared a draft of the project development plan and illustrated it to other friends who were so enthusiastic about it, they decided to finance the project. So, they started the development process: industrial design, user and manufacturing tests, patent applications, graphic design. After two and half years of dedicated work, they presented it at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions Geneva, where it has been awarded with the Gold Medal for the invention and won the Swiss Young Business Managers’ Association Award (GJD Suisse) for project management.
